Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre International

Local nameChurch of Scientology Celebrity Centre International
LocationLos Angeles, USA

Formerly a high-class hotel that accommodated famous movie stars, the Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre International is nowadays a base for the Church of Scientology, some members of which live in it full-time. It is also a tourist sight. Don't miss the restaurant inside, which offers affordable meals in a luxurious environment. The construction of the building began in the 1920s. Its owner, Elinor K. Ince wished for it to be an apartment house for movie stars, maybe in memory of her deceased husband, Thomas H. Ince, who was a member of the film industry as well. The house itself is a replica of a 17th century French castle. The building can be entered as a part of a tour organised by the church. These tours may be a good way to learn more about scientology, you can even see the room of the religion's founder, Ron L. Hubbard. The surrounding grounds and gardens are open to visitors, too. However, taking photographs is strictly forbidden all over the premises.
